USA Today has named ANA’s Suite Lounge at Haneda Airport in Tokyo the second-best Airport Lounge. Only Delta’s Sky Club at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York managed to beat ANA.
The title is all the more special since the top 10 winners are determined by a popular vote so it is the traveling community and not the expert panel that decides the final result. Another reason is the fact that ANA’s three new lounges at Haneda Airport have only been open for a year.
A touch of luxury
All of ANA’s lounges at Haneda Airport have been designed by Japanese architect, Kengo Kuma (source) and look to elevate the lounge experience to a whole new level.
Collectively, they offer not just live kitchens and more traditional restaurant-style dining areas but also social and napping areas (and even a “bamboo forest”) catering to a wide variety of seasoned travellers.
Passenger comfort and overall aesthetic experience was clearly, very important in creating these spaces. All the more important for ANA to select materials that will not only provide comfort but also retain their like-new look for months and years to come.
ELeather has been used in some of the seating areas to upholster seat and cushion covers. Thanks to its natural look and soft, supple surface, the material contributes to the luxurious surrounding, while working harmoniously with the wider theme and colour scheme.
The most sustainable solution
ELeather’s philosophy is based around taking more care of the world’s precious resources. We turn something that others deem waste and turn it into a high-performing material that not only reduces waste but also lowers carbon emissions and reduces the use of the earth’s scarce resources.
